After hearing about the death of the Mantesan defense minister, and the trial in Khazar Lechia, the Plutarchy has seen an... opportunity. For the past week Praetoriian military units have assembled at various foreign bases near Mantesa, Khazar Lechia, and Cielearda. Two aircraft carrier battlegroups have also been dispatched to the Northwestern coast of the Epitomic Sea.
Synnove is on the Ministerial Jet, heading towards Pentiscola. He gets a text explaining what was going on with Praetoriius. He shouts to his aide.
“Get the pilot to turn the plane around, we’ll do this another day.”
While the plane is manoeuvring, Synnove calls the Archplutarch’s office, requesting a meeting.
"Ok then! Lets go, shall we?"
Cicero has just received a dispatch from a radar in the border with Cielearda informing about Synnove going back to Cielearda. He is about to pick up the Red Phone to call the Cieleardan capital when a military sergeant enters the room carrying another dispatch, this time from the Admiralty
"What the hell are they doing!? What is the meaning of this?" Cicero insinctively picks the phone and dials the number of the Defense Minister. Until he remebers he is dead. "F*ck! This is too much of a coincidence...Could it be... Hey you!" Yells Cicero to the sergeant that brought the dispatch "Bring Mister Graco here now! Also, bring the head of the Secret Services!" As the poor man runs out of the room, Cicero also calls the Archplutarch trying to arrange a meeting between Graco and the Plutarchy.
This is ENN: Thanks to efforts by brave Delta 3 and Lusotae agents from Praetoriius, the city of Fortress G98 has been retaken, and I have been rescued from the Black Cell! Many critics have observed that the Klocian Alliance has been beneficial for Thialrer. Also, General Diana Knight, Minister of Defense and President Artemis Knight's sister, has been appointed the first ever declassified Director of Delta 3. The previous Director, whose identity is classified, apparently resigned to focus on, quote, "other work." The Black Cell has been crippled! Thialrer is safe again, thanks to the valiant efforts of Delta 3 and Praetoriius!
The Arch-Plutarch is sitting in his room, looking at a map of Klocia, a faint smile on his face. He had allowed Synnove an Graco to meet with him, and by his calculations they should be arriving in the next hour. good he thinks to himself let them come he whispers faintly as he launches the assembly signal for the council of Plutarchs.
Synnove walks through the palace, his stomach churning despondently. When he arrives at the Archplutarch’s door, he hesitates. But after a moment, he dusted himself off, and opens the door.
“Now what is f***’s name do you think you are doing?” He announces as he storms in. Just before the Archplutarch responds, Synnove checks his watch and looks at the door.
“Any second now... ”
TAG: Royalist Deyest
"I should be asking for you Mr Synnove"
The door to Archplutarch's office opens and a woman wearing a Large, Detailed Rose Red Dress Walks in and Shuts the door behind her, with a smile painted on her own face.
"Archplutarch," She smiles as she walks next to Synnove with the clicking of heels on the floor and a gleam of Small Diamond Tiara in the Light. "I don't believe we have met yet. Yuri Sstanza, Queen of Deyest. I believe this meeting was called with due haste because of a certain situation going on with you and your neighbors?"
Dircya calls Qirka’s secretary, who picks up on the fourth ring.
“Hello? (secretary speaks) Yes, this is she. I would like to inform Qirka of the law’s passing. Could you please notify me when she is available? (secretary speaks) Thank you ever so much. I hope today is a pleasant day for you.” She hangs up, then turns to Lani.
“Are you up for a game of Chinese Checkers?”
“What’s happened to you? You were definitely upset when the meeting concluded.”
“Yes, well, I’ve had time to reflect upon the incident and realize that there wasn’t much I could do to create a different outcome. Of course, I could have never hired that disgraceful Minister, but there wasn’t any way of me knowing he would do this. Anyway,” Dircya softly beams at Lani. “Would you like to play Chinese Checkers?”
Cicero is standing at the door of the Archplutarch's room. He has dealt with crazier men, but not as mysterious as the leader of Praetoriius. There is something in that man that makes Cicero's body chill. His shady busineses and his sketchy deals feel quite...unsettling. The President Minister makes up his mind after several minutes of mental preparation. He enters the room, although less violently than Synnove. He just takes off his hat and calmly says "Good day everyone"
"Mmmm... Welcome Queen Sstanza. It is a shame that we must meet under these circumstances." He picks up a phone and calls someone. "Tell Quove Lentis and Orbix Varum to come up to my quarters immediatly. We have... a bit of a situation up here. A squad of Lutosae should do as well."
Yuri glances at Mr Synnove who clearly shows some distain towards the Archplutarch. She looks back at the Archplutarch who was talking to her and say, "Well then, with the look you posses I'm sure I will enjoy this meeting." She gives another sweet but almost sinister smile.
